9/2/2016 21- Update the Honor Code section to read:
22 First Violation
A faculty member who believes a violation has occurred must contact the designated department
representative to determine whether a prior violation was committed by the student. If the alleged
violation of the Honor Code is a first violation, it may be resolved through a faculty-student joint
conference or by requesting an Academic Integrity Review to determine the accuracy of the allegations
and assign appropriate penalties, if warranted. The joint conference is to be held at a time acceptable to
both parties. The faculty member informs the student of the details of the suspected violation and the
reasons for believing it has occurred. The faculty member is under no obligation to disclose third-party
individuals at this time. The minimum penalty for a first violation may be failure of the assignment and
the maximum is failure of the course. The faculty works alongside the student to make this a learning
opportunity. The student learns why their work is considered plagiarized and how to tie to other work or
paraphrase. The assignment is returned, retaken, or a zero is given on the assignment. The faculty denotes
the incident in the student’s record. The minimum penalty for a first violation may be failure of the
assignment and required completion of anti-plagiarism training.

Second Violation
If a student has been found to have committed an Honor Code violation at any time during enrollment at
the University, any subsequent violation is considered as a second violation. Thus, a violation committed
by a graduate student who also committed a violation as a Stratford undergraduate would be classified as
a second violation. If the alleged violation of the Honor Code is a second violation, a joint conference
may be held to determine whether the allegation has merit. An Academic Integrity Review by the campus
dean is conducted regarding all alleged second violations in addition to or in replace of the joint
conference. All proven second violations of the Honor Code result in failure of the course and dismissal
for the term. These decisions must be approved by the campus director and dean. Only these individuals
may recommend alternative actions. A second issue with plagiarism results in a more in depth learning
session held with the faculty, student, and campus librarian. Students may be required to repeat the online
modules on avoiding plagiarism and APA.

9
Third Violation
The campus dean and designated program representative are notified and the offense is noted in the
student’s record. A student accused of an Honor Code violation may withdraw from the course in which
the offense is alleged to have occurred only
if the proposed penalty is less severe than failure of the
course, dismissal for the term, or from the University. In all other situations, the student cannot withdraw.
A record of a proven violation is kept even if a student is able to withdraw.
9/2/2016 22 Update the Standard Term of Non-Attendance section to read:
As such, students are not required to repeat the admissions process; if a student does not return in the
subsequent term, the last date of attendance marks the start of the non-enrolled period.
